Israel: Never misses an opportunity to degrade Palestinians.

Israel: Never misses an opportunity to degrade Palestinians.

Hamas is not representative of all Palestinians. They are terrorists and nothing else. Even Egypt doesn't anything to do with them.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

Hamas is a terrorist group and nothing more. Israel needs to pound them out of Gaza and the West Bank.

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

why isn't the world up in arms about israel murdering two children? then blowing the hell out of the worlds biggest prison camp?

Those pesky Ghetto people firing skyrockets willy nilly, the only response is to fire smart bombs at hospitals, schools, government institutions. Thank god they are encased behind concrete walls or hell they might actually reclaime their own land bursting forth from the ghetto to reclaim their land.

Hamas has good parts and bad parts.

The good parts provide services to people, similar to what a church or govt might do. If your govt ignored you and Hamas provides blankets and food when you need it, wouldn't you be more likely to approve of them?

The bad parts plan and carry out terrorist activities.

When anyone fires a gun at you, regardless of their age, they need to be taken out. Teens firing guns are just as dangerous, perhaps more dangerous, than a 35 yr old doing the same. Teens don't know they can be killed in the same way an adult realizes this fact.

Netanyahu under investigation.

Divert, dismiss, deflect.

Like the British Govt post civil rights, post Bloody Sunday.

Shame on Israel and its supporters.

When you occupy a people and push half into a Ghetto, it is easy to call those who fight back terrorists.

When you deny people freedom in their own land and take land from them at will it is easy to claim to be victims of their aggression when they fight back.

If the Israeli Government was not in charge of a country but were fighting for freedom they would be the ones labeled as terrorists.

They have never wanted a two state solution. As long as they hold the upper hand with US support and with weapons at their disposal, why not maneuver to get all the land the Palestinians have, and kick them out completely? Who is the real terrorist? In my submission it is the Government of Israel. No doubt at all.

1900 years of banishment + a holicost does not justify building a wall around these people making a ghetto while stealing the land that has been in their families for 100!s of years. But Moses, David had great publicity they win for now. Rome had the solution.

The will to resist and the means to resist must be eliminated before a peace process can be achieved.

-8 ( +1 / -9 )

solution: just stick to the 1967 border with a highway and train system between Gaza and the West Bank, two airports, temporary work visas, a 20% share of oil and gas, fishing rights, no settlements, freedom of movement. so easy.........

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Palestinian_suicide_attacks

Any organization that uses suicide bombers loses the right to take the moral high ground. Carry on Israel.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Hamas are terrorists and murderers, targeting civilians in an attempt to terrorise the population, grooming and using suicide bombers shows an utter lack of real care for their own people. If you have been threatened with the obliteration of your country and people as the Israelis have for over 60 years, you would seek to destroy the capacity of terrorists to attack you as well.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Israel is a terrorists nation steeling land ( not given to them by the United Nations) from the inhabitants along with murder of innocent people also don't forget the Israel Attack on the US Navy (USS Liberty) murder of 34 and wounding 171 Sailors

Hamas does not represent all Palestinians. Just like Israeli missiles don't only hit members of Hamas.

 If you have been threatened with the obliteration of your country and people as the Israelis have for over 60 years, you would seek to destroy the capacity of terrorists to attack you as well

Agreed. But breeding contempt in an entire population is only feeding the capacity of terrorists.

Israel committing genocide again I see.

theFu: Hamas has good parts and bad parts. The good parts provide services to people, similar to what a church or govt might do.

It's been a while since I've read up but it's my understanding that Hamas uses this as a weapon. You either support them or you get cut off from aid. It's a means to control the population since people depend on the aid to survive.

The fact that as long as the Palestinians continue to use violence to try to achieve their goals, the world will never really restrict Israel in any meaningful way.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

The cutting of funding for Palestinian refugees doesn't help matters.

Hopefully, Governments around the world will follow Ireland's example (when implemented) to recognise the state of Palestine. These brutal IDF attacks will be under even greater scrutiny, then.

Just like Israeli missiles don't only hit members of Hamas.

Turning the other cheek might not keep you alive for long. If Israel does nothing in fear of hitting civilians, who probably were put there by Hamas, its not going to exist for long.

Hamas has good parts and bad parts.

You can say that about any mass murderer .
